A massive wrong has been righted. Okay, maybe there are more important things in this crazy world, and 'massive' is an overstatement, but surely this will make some Wizards fans out there a little bit happier.
After excluding him from their original all-time Wizards/Bullets roster, NBA 2K18 has added Caron Butler, a former fan favorite who made two All-Star teams in Washington.
NBA 2K18's Ronnie Singh confirmed the news on Twitter:
It turns out Butler's absence was due to likeness rights and it wasn't a simple omission by 2K Sports. That is understandable. Now all we need is to get Michael Jordan, Gilbert Arenas and Phil Chenier on there. The world needs to see Phil's afro and sideburns in video game form.

It was a long night for Jackson, as you'll see throughout this post, and it started with this putback jumper by Wall that left Jackson in the dust:
2. Wall finished with 26 points, 10 assists and two blocks. Both of his blocks were amazing. The first was this one, on Tobias Harris who is a power forward:

3. Wall's 28 points were much quieter than in the season-opener when he was dunking all over everyone. In this game, though, he did have this sick layup on the fastbreak:
